Hope you all had a great Holy Week and Easter wherever you might be. I remember Holy Weeks in the Philippines. There would be lots of "pabasa" or "pasion" in the streets. You can join them as they sing the Psalms or the whole Bible (I honestly don't know much about what they're singing about). There wouldn't be much shows on the local TV, and we'd be excited to see "Jesus of Nazareth" or "The Ten Commandments" being shown on the TV instead.
On our street, a procession of the Jesus Nazarene would pass by after 3PM on a Good Friday. Then we'd go Visita Iglesia - visiting different churches - afterwards. Easter is usually celebrated with a mass then mall time.
Then after Easter is a manic Monday at work/school for some as the students on vacation continue to have more fun. Sucks, I know.
As for us here in Malaysia, we never felt any of these. I was even surprised to know that we were approaching Holy Week, but that's about it. Anyway, we're in the wrong country to expect people celebrating Holy Week. Gets? :-)
